Strengthened by the Holy Sacraments, Agatha DeBrock passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus on October 26, 2020.

Born Agatha Bernadine Tenholder to Martin and JoHannah Tenholder on April 7, 1927, she was the third of six children. As a child, she loved singing in the barn swing, the outdoors, and her family.

Agatha graduated from St. Mary’s in 1946. She met her future husband, Edward DeBrock, at a dance where he was playing music. They married on August 27, 1947. From their union, they were blessed with four children: Elaine (Stanley) Vandeven, Philip (Janet) DeBrock, Debbie (Melvin) Keith, and Kathy (Don) Nanney, all of Leopold, nine grandchildren, and thirteen great-grandchildren.

In addition to being a loving and dedicated mother and grandmother, she loved quilting, gardening, and bingo. Throughout her entire life, she held an unwavering faith in God, which she shared with all who surrounded her. She was a faithful member of St. John’s Catholic Church in Leopold. She was a past president of Legion of Mary, past president of Ladies Sodality, she was a PSR teacher since 1953, and proud Red Cross volunteer. Her Catholic faith meant everything to her.

Agatha joins her parents, four siblings: Leola Tenholder, Mary Frances Vandeven, Rosie Elfrink, and Joe Tenholder, her husband Ed, her son Philip, and two grandchildren, Christopher Vandeven and Jessica Keith in Heaven. She is survived by one sister Juliana Elfrink. While she will be sorely missed by loved ones on earth, she will be joyously welcomed by her loved ones in Heaven.

Visitation will be Friday, November 13, 2020 from 10:00 AM until time of Mass at 11:00AM at the St. John’s Catholic Church with Rev. David Coon officiating. Interment will follow in the Church Cemetery.
